In a surreal twist, one of Japan's biggest rock stars also happens to be one of that country's most revered classical composers. His name is Yoshiki and the breadth of his musical accomplishment astonishes. The same man who, as the leader of the heavy metal band X Japan, sold out the 55,000-seat Tokyo Dome 18 times was selected by the Japanese government to write a classical composition celebrating Emperor Akihito. Commissioned to write themes for events as diverse as the 2012 Grammys and the World Expo, he has now released a solo album of original instrumental works, Yoshiki Classical, to global acclaim. For one night only, he will perform captivating melodies from his new album live at Davies Symphony Hall, playing solo piano with string quartet accompaniment. Learn More

Beethoven: Symphony No. 8
At this concert, you’ll hear the conductor briefly share unique perspectives on the composer, the work, and its place in musical history. Experience two sides of Beethoven: the Classical symphonist and the passionate dramatist. The San Francisco Symphony presents Beethoven’s searing Overture to Coriolan and his tightly-wound Eighth Symphony. Violinist Vadim Repin will shine performing Sibelius’s Violin Concerto, a virtuosic masterpiece.
Meet Vadim Repin at an exclusive CD signing immediately following the concert at the Symphony Store in the lobby.
